Chumbawamba - Colliers march

Tekst piosenki:

The summer was over the season unkind
   In harvest a snow, how uncommon to find
   The times were oppressive and well it be known
   That hunger will stronger [?] fences break down
   \'Twas then from theirselves the black gentry stepped out
   With bludgeons determined to stir up a rout
   The prince of the party who revelled from home
   Was a terrible fellow and called Irish Thom
   He brandished his bludgeon with dexterous skill
   And close to his elbow was placed Bonny (?) Will
   Their instantly followed a numerous train
   As cheerful as bold Robin Hood\'s merry men
   Sworn to remedy a capital fault
   And bring down the exorbitant price of the malt
   From Dudley to Walso (?) they trippet (?) along
   And Hampton was truly alarmed at the throng
   Women and children wherever they go
   Shouting out \'Oh the brave Dudley boys! Oh!\'
   With nailers and spinners the cavalcade joined
   The markets to lower their flattering design
   Six days out of seven poor nailing boys get
   Little else at their meals but potatos to eat
   For bread hard they labor, good things never carve
   And swore \'twere as well to be hanged as to starve
   Such other feelings in every land
   Nothing necessities coal can withstand
   And riots are certain to sadden the year
   When six penny loaves are three pound as up here
